Congratulations are always in order when you’re planning to get married. It’s an exciting and hectic time with important considerations that need to be made. From choosing a wedding venue to setting a budget, there’s a lot to keep in mind. To stay on the right track, here are the top three things you need to consider when planning a wedding.
It seems you can never run away from budgets, even if you’re planning a wedding. Without a budget, it’s super easy for costs to add up between paying for a wedding venue and getting the dress. The good news is weddings don’t have to break the bank to be special. If you can afford to splurge on your wedding, then no problem! But don’t be tempted to overspend if your budget doesn’t allow for it.
If you need some extra cash to fund the wedding, you can always ask family and friends to chip, but you can’t always count on these contributions 100%. Alternatively, you can finance the wedding, but make sure you only take out debt you can afford to pay.
That’s the big question, isn’t it? Once you announce your engagement, even most people will want to know when the special day will happen. It all depends on your preferences. About 35% of weddings now happen outdoors, and if you want an outdoor occasion too, then you’ll want a wedding venue that’s best suited for summer weddings. In the same vein, you can create your own Winter Wonderland with a winter wedding.
Your wedding date will also be affected by both your schedules and when you’ll be able to take some time off and plan for it. You also want a date that can be attended by key guests and which doesn’t coincide with other important functions. Last but not least, choosing the right date can save you money if you don’t mind choosing a date outside the wedding season.
The wedding venue is one of the important factors to consider when planning a wedding. There are so many options to choose from, depending on your budget. Popular wedding venues include beach resorts, a house of worship, hotels, and parks. Overall, your wedding venue should be easily accessible to guests while being stylish and beautiful.
Getting engaged is one of the most romantic events in life, and while wedding planning can get a bit stressful, you can still keep the excitement alive. It’s all about considering what’s important, so you can create the wedding of your dreams.
